Puppy Playdate Registration

Our puppy playdates are reserved for puppies who are currently enrolled in or who have recently graduated from our Puppy Kindergarten classes. 

A proof of class participation or graduation is required for admission (no exception, see Step 3).

Final sales – we do not provide refund, transfer, or exchange for puppy playdate registrations.

Step 1: Check age and playdate schedule

Calculate your puppy’s age on the date of the playdate by entering your puppy’s date of birth and the start date of the playdate you are interested in using this calculator. Please check our event schedule for playdate start date.

Step 2: Age requirement

Ensure your puppy meets the age requirement (no exception):

  • Junior Puppy Playdate: 9 to 17 weeks old
  • Senior Puppy Playdate: 14 to 24 weeks old
  • Teenage Puppy Playdate: 22 to 34 weeks old

Step 3: Proof of class participation or graduation

We will check on our system that your puppy has proof of class participation or graduation. Only students and alumni from these classes are able to participate:

  • Puppy Kindergarten I
  • Puppy Kindergarten II
  • Puppy Kindergarten III

When you sign up for our playdate, you agree that the Ottawa Canine School reserves the right to cancel your registration with no refund if your puppy does not meet the requirements.

Step 4: Vaccination requirement

Check if your puppy meets the vaccination requirement. All puppies must be up to date with their vaccines. The correct round of vaccinations must have been administered at least 7 days prior to the playdate.

Step 5: Select a playdate

Check the playdate schedule to see which playdate is available. If a playdate is marked “Full”, please email us to be placed on a waiting list.

Step 6: Playdate registration

Register for the playdate by selecting “Sign-up” and follow the procedure on this page.

Step 7: Pay to reserve your spot

You have several ways to pay:

  • You can pay online using your credit card or via PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account).
  • You can pay over the phone (check store hours for when to call) using your credit card.
  • You can send an Email Money Transfer to info@ottawak9school.com (use OCS2019 as the password).
  • You can pay in-person (check store hours) using your credit card, cheque and cash.

Please note that your spot is not guaranteed until payment is received (first come, first serve).

Step 8: Prepare for the playdate

What to bring to the playdate:

  • Plenty of small training treats that your puppy loves
  • A regular 6-foot leash (non-retractable)
  • A dog training food reward pouch, bag, or holder so that you can retrieve your food reward easily
  • A regular collar or harness
  • Indoor shoes (for the humans) if it is wet or mucky out

Step 9: You are all set and ready to go!

We look forward to seeing you and your puppy at the playdate. Have a great day!
